How can I test the Door Lock Assembly Switch (AP4441836) to make sure it's working. It doesn't seem to sense when the door is closed so when I press on the start button after selecting a cycle nothing happens. I took the switch out and check the 4 pins with my continuity test and none of them change connectivity no matter what position the switch is in.
ANSWER Hi Mike. The door lock Assy. part # 6601ER1004C has a coil and a wax motor that closes within a predetermined time. So you can only test some of the latch. See the page of this service manual to test.I would use a volt/ohm meter part # TJMA-DM1 to assist. you in your diagnosis. Use the supplied Tech. sheet to aid you in the diagnostic mode. Is the display showing a dE code? It is designed to test the individual par6ts and throw up a fault code. You will find it in the top area after you remove the top. Make sure all latch connections are tight. Thank You.
